I guess Usher really did plan for his upcoming release, “Monster” to be a strike back at his spouse. Word is…Sean Garrett penned a song for Usher that delves into his current divorce saga. Although the song was bounced around amongst producers way before news of their marital discourse hit the streets, it’s definitely a no-brainer as to what’s about to happen. The currently untitled song is being referred to as “Filing Papers” and it’s about a marriage coming to an end. Song writing extraordinaire, Sean Garrett explains that he and Usher didn’t even speak about trouble in the singer’s marriage at the time, but he’s known for creating personalized songs for several artists. Sean’s intuition ain’t no joke! He says:
Let’s say I wrote a record for Usher three or four months ago where I really didn’t have any idea of what he was going through personally. I work really hard at creating records I feel that’s gonna fit like a glove to an artist. Me and Usher have a close relationship; I tend to sort of assist certain artists in giving them a direction, where I think they need to go in their next move. I felt that was the direction we needed to go. I felt that was the question everyone wanted to know: Was [his relationship] good or was it bad? Was it right? Are you happy or you’re not?
When asked how he felt when he learned about Usher’s divorce, Garrett said:
“I’m a heavy believer in God. I’m a Pisces. My intuition is crazy. I think that’s healthy in the process for me writing and producing for people. I can feel a person’s vibe without them even saying it. I can read a person’s body language. Maybe it was a sign. Maybe it was a sign of what my man was going through and he needed to get out. Maybe it was something she needed to hear as a wake-up call to her. I don’t know — their relationship is not my business. But once people hear this record, it’s gonna make their hair raise up.

Producer Zaytoven speaks to MTV about Usher’s new song
We all know Usher filed for divorce from Tameka Foster-Raymond last month and they are scheduled to begin proceedings tomorrow (July 15). Funny thing is, Tameka, who’s known to tweet her “A”zz off, has planned a Twitter “FAST” from (7/15- 8/15). She is totally going to back away from the computer (finally). Seems innocent enough…right? but don’t make those assumptions so fast. Continue Reading…
Tameka Foster Glover Raymond committed a huge twitter error recently when she accidentally sent Star Jones a tweet that was meant as a Direct Message. In the message, Meka revealed that she was not happy with her current divorce attorney, Randall M. Kessler, and asked Star Jones for a bit of advice. Moments after realizing her mistake, Tameka sought to erase it but it was too late.
@starjonesesq my lawyer= horrible. Need the name/number of a good one in Atlanta.
Please delete this…it was a DM mistake. Not for ppl to see. I’m sorry.
One would think that Foster would have Twitter mastered by now, as she regularly uses the social networking site to misquote Bible verses and affirmations lifted from various spiritual gurus.
Over the last six months, Foster also used Twitter to mislead followers about the state of her relationship with the ‘Confessions’ singer.
She implied all was well with random Tweets about Usher going to the grocery store and the couple allegedly sending love messages back and forth while he was shooting the movie ‘Five Killers’ with Ashton Kutcher. ~ Jawn Murray
BTW…this isn’t the first time Meka has made this mistake. Might I suggest she take it easy on the tweets for a while…
Moving on…it’s being speculated that Usher wasn’t really too sure that Tameka’s 5th son was his. And if you take Tameka’s snitchin “A”zz friend’s words at face value, he may have even requested a DNA test on Lil Nayvid: Continue Reading…
Usher got his own post so I guess it’s only fair that Tameka gets some shine today too. A friend of mine has a great blog that reveals her secrets to success and longevity in Atlanta’s music scene. She’s seen it all and has shared some of the most outrageous stories of her experiences coupled with what she’s learned from them. One of my favorites is a post she wrote about an experience she had working with Mrs. Usher:
That’s right…Tameka Foster, Glover, Raymond once made me cry on the set of a video for a short lived group called the ATL. We were already 3 hours behind and she was not allowing the group to get dressed because…hummm…her creative vision AS A WARDROBE STYLIST was being compromised! I believe that was the line she gave me! I was the second assistant director and my SOLE job for the day was to the get the Artists’ and the models to set, and of course they couldn’t get there… if they didn’t have their clothes on! I begged and pleaded with Tameka which seemed to only fuel her fire.
